Default Re: Comprehensive SMG to 6MT Conversion Thread

I have a 2003 M3 SMG, which I love but I am looking to convert it from the SMG to Manual. Though I am a YouTube mechanic a DYI is way above my head for a car I rely on for a daily transport. So with that said I live in the DMV (VA) area and am looking for a shop or some BMW gearheads that can help me convert my baby. My plan is to buy the parts then, with your help, find a shop or person/s who can do the conversion for the cost of labor or several cases of beer your choice

If anyone knows of a shop or person that will to the conversion for the cost of labor if I supply the parts please PM or email me!

Thanks in advance

I used Hex Edit for Windows, it's free and really simple to use. You cannot do this part in Martyn's tool at the moment.

Note some USA cars have the clutch bounce issue, I've never had issue with my clutch (maybe USA ones are setup differently)

1.

This part deletes the Gear Postion Sensor from the DME

Current value will be: 01,
You need to change it to 02 in 4028

Type 4028 the hex address in the box highlighted at the top and hit return, the cursor will then be taken to that byte, you need to change to 02



2.

This bit stops the a error

Change to FFFF in 0x35AC

Type in 0x35AC in the Hex Edit software like I did then change to FFFF see the difference between the two images for the change.

You should be changing the next word (0032 -> FFFF)

Also it's worth noting that the address will vary from software version to software version. So just search for "003232FF00F7" and change that first "0032" to "FFFF"
Anyone have the address for part 1 for mss54hp cars? 4028 results in a field that is FFFF on manual HP DME tunes from the few I compared which tells me this space is only relevant to pre-04 cars. I was able to adjust part 2, but need part 1 for cruise to work on the car I worked on last night.

Have yet to find any info on here regarding the offset location for part 1 to remove the GPS from the DME, so I'm assuming people with 04+ cars are skipping this step when they realize the offset is incorrect for all models.

If anyone knows the correct offset, program version in question is 2001, I'd greatly appreciate it for future reference for all.

I am not worried about the swap itself...I am worried about the whole coding thing

I did a manual swap on a e36 and all we had to do was code it for a manual in pretty much one step....this swap will be done on a ZCP so I don't need to mess with cruise control

So all I need to do is hit up a shop who is familiar with coding and they simply load the software?

I did it myself on jackstands. I am not a mechanic but if you have the patience you can do it yourself. I even pulled the engine out bc figured time to replace all the seals and gaskets, including the CPV.

As far as coding, find a shop near you that has an autologic. Mine took less than an hour and cost me $65.00.

Send me a PM if you have questions.

Default Re: Comprehensive SMG to 6MT Conversion Thread

Hey guys so I glad to say that I completed the swap successfully, even used an oem 6 speed transmission. Never got around to doing any of the coding. Than fast forward 6 months later I'm driving hit a pot hole eml light turns on than off than car shuts down. Still has power but won't start. Cranks good but nothing as far as hearing the pump turn on. I even tried another fuel pump still won't start. I tried pulling the codes tells me dme is unable to communicate. Question if I hadn't done the coding to manual and such and I still have the smg harnesses unplugged will that cause it to not read on any code reader? Weird thing is I replaced 20 amp fuse in e-box. Than tried to start gave a little gas and it started, but when I tried to take off it died. I'm all out of ideas anyone have a clue or guess I would appreciate it!

Honestly donít waste your time with Gear Position Sensor, itís not needed, everything on mine works as it should without one, cruise control, which deactivates when you press the brake, press the clutch. No difference.
